* Article: “Think Global, Print Local”: A case study on a commons-based publishing and distribution model. By Vasilis Kostakis, Stacco Troncoso, and Ann Marie Utratel. Journal of Peer Production, Issue #10: Peer Production and Work, 2017.


"This article presents a case study that demonstrates the convergence of decentralized online and offline ways of sharing knowledge. We describe a new techno-economic form of value creation and distribution in relation to the knowledge commons and the publishing industry. The dynamics and challenges of an emerging, commons-oriented copyright license (the Peer Production License) are also outlined. We conclude that the approach introduced by this case study could build bridges across languages and cultures, and enable concrete, material commoning practices."
